     Not everyone born human grows humane,
     For Homo sapiens is far from wise
     At birth and must assiduously attain
     To higher consciousness to realize
     Potentials furled in every human soul,
     A spirit seed in need of nurturing
     That without careful tending won’t grow whole,
     An unfledged nightingale who cannot sing.
     So any college that may hope to send
     Its graduates beyond its gates prepared
     To serve the world and deeply comprehend
     Its needs will show that it has truly cared
          Not only for their intellectual parts
          But also for their glowing souls and hearts.
